Drive-In Movies Near Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor

Get a retro movie-going experience.

Everyone did a lot of adjusting during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Restaurants started serving curb-side, bars were able to sell drinks to go and we saw the second rise of the drive-in movie theater.

And while some things are getting back to pre-pandemic practices, it looks like the drive-in might be around for a while longer — perhaps permanently, if we’re lucky.

Here, we’ve rounded up some drive-in spots that are playing kid-friendly movies during the fall of 2021. Check it out to find an option near you and treat your kids to some old-school fun.

Ford Drive-In

Now playing movies such as Malignant (R), The Suicide Squad (R), Candyman (R), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (PG-13) and others.

Macomb County Drive-In Movies

September brings big kid titles like Hocus Pocus and Hotel Transylvania 2. Adult options include A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, Halloween and The Cabin in the Woods. Watch for musical performances before some shows, too.

Summer Drive-In at USA Hockey Arena

Kid-friendly flicks in September are Free Guy (PG-13), Paw Patrol: The Movie (G) and Jungle Cruise (PG-13). Closes for the season on Sept. 5, so get there early in the month.
